  • As Ireland get set to kick off their Euro 2016 campaign this Monday against Sweden, Bobby will be joined by Irish Daily Mail travel writer Philip Nolan and Thomas CurranCorporate Sales Manager with Enterprise Rent a Car.

Jonathan Kirwan, Managing Director of Gino's Gelato, Jenny McCormack, owner of Scrumdiddlys and Frank Doonan, Managing Director of Martin Food Equipment will be the three scoops in this tasty conversation.

All proceeds from the Dublin2Paris cycle will go directly to Mustard Seed Communities. The event organisers hope to fund the building and operations of a school at a Mustard Seed Communities ‘Little Angels’ project in Zimbabwe, at Woodville, Bulawayo. 
  • From the north west of France we head south to the principality of Monaco for the EY World Entrepreneur of the Year Awards.
